Not much missing from your pic Kevin,except maybe a lid from the water trap?
Here are a couple just up the road,.............a bloke having a shed clean out.
I'm not sure what breed these are,but they are a little more modern.The Simplex pumps were/are a fairly common sight locally in the old soldier settler walk through dairies.

We went through a few of them. After a fair bit of use the vanes would wear a corrugated pattern in the bore. A common trick was to make a water jacket to go over the exhaust and it would warm water which was plumber to the bails for washing teats before putting the cups on.Ours was driven by an electric motor but we had a Ronnie N hooked up so we could still milk if we lost power.
